We are currently using the Cloud SDK. We are looking to purchase / move to the Mobile SDK for speed. Is the Mobile SDK just as accurate? I remember using the free Mobile SDK a long while back and it wasn't as accurate.

Hallo Jason,

the Cloud OCR service is using the FineReader Engine 11 - the "big" ABBYY OCR toolkit. The technologies used in the Mobile OCR Engine are not the same, because they were designed to work on mobile devices with much less resources. So there are many differences e.g. in image pre-processing, layout analysis, export formats. Here some more details:
